Finding a planet that is floundering in the morals that it attempted to imbue within them, It decides that this is the planet that will be the proving grounds for Its test. It cuts a tiny piece from itself and places it down upon the planet to be born and raised as one of them. To blend into the species and once it has reached the appropriate age, it will begin to teach them to love and respect one another. Not to destroy and harm each other for little or no reason.
It watches with such intensity that it doesn’t notice the beings that have joined it in watching the beings react to Its image. Without words, It soon realizes that these beings were summoned with the species’ prayers and worship. One of the most powerful is the actual planet. This fascinates It, since this isn’t something that was expected. It returns Its attention to the planet to find that the creatures have not only ignored Its teachings, but have killed It. Disgusted, it calls back the piece that it had given the planet and it rises back up to it. As it is about to destroy the planet and leave for the next, which has more promise, the other beings make suggestions to It. The recommendations make sense, and It is tired of all of the destruction that it has performed as of recent. It heeds their advice and whispers into the minds of many of the creatures that were kind to It while it was upon the world. It will tell them to write their own book and tell of what they hear and see. Once finished, It tells them all that It will return to check upon them.
Once completed, It turns to other worlds, leaving the one with nothing but the teachings that will make it a better species. Spreading Itself throughout the universe to complete Its final mission turns out to drain away more of Its essence than It had planned for. It realizes that staying at the size that It currently is will mean Its demise, so It does the unimaginable… it pulls onto Itself to strengthen Itself. It pulls and shrinks and is amazed at how far It must go in order to begin to gather strength. Before It realizes it, It has reduced Itself smaller than a galaxy, and It still is very weak. Gathered up to the size of a planet, It realizes Its fate is sealed. Remembering the promise to return to that first planet, It crosses the vast distance in the blink of an eye, arriving at the world.
The first thing that It notices is that the beings that were present are no longer there, even the spirit of the planet is gone. It should know why this is, but most of Its boundless powers have become bounded. It turns Its attention to the planet, with hopes of a serene population that has learned from Its lessons, but it is horrified by what it has found.
Its creations have evolved and their knowledge has allowed them to create weapons that kill each other with greater ease. Those who follow his teachings do not do it as one. They kill each other if they do not read Its words the same way. Those who lead his teachings abuse those who follow. Looking closer, It realizes that most of those that read Its word do not even follow the teachings. It looks around at the rest of the creatures and sees those that do not follow Its teachings. Some follow other non-present beings, while some simply believe in nothing. Taking a closer look, It sees they only want proof of Its presence. It thinks that a way to show Its presence is to create places of healing. Places where the sick can be taken and healed, no matter the illness.
It smiles as people flock to these places, yet those who do not believe still find reasons for Its non-existence. It has never known frustration before. Before It can do anything, the creatures erupt into a fight that covers the world. The shock of the violence… the death… stills It into inactivity, watching the species rip itself apart… most of them in Its name.
It can no longer take it. After watching Its followers not only fail in Its teaching, but break many of the basic teachings… It decides that this mistake must be fixed. Perhaps they can be brought together if their species is threatened as a whole. It begins to do things to cause upheavals on the planet. It slaps the water, causing a massive wave and flooding an island of creatures. It pokes the planet, causing it to shake with tremendous damage. No matter what It does, the different groups still fight.
It realizes the time has come, but this is one planet that will not be allowed to infect other planets. With a last action, It wraps itself around the planet like a giant blanket… and simply begins to squeeze. As it does, an unknown sensation fills It. This must be what those creatures called… regret.
